If you have a sibling, you don’t need us to tell you how special Raksha Bandhan is for brothers and sisters. Every year, we dress up in our prettiest ethnic wear and get together with our siblings to celebrate our love for them with gifts, sweets and rakhis. It’s safe to say that this is also the time when most of us reminisce about our fondest memories with each other. “My brother used to help me do my art homework when I was in primary school,” shares fashion influencee and founder of What When Wear, Aanam C. “He was so much better at it than I was, but he would guide me with my drawing so patiently.”

While you may not be able to visit your sibling for Raksha Bandhan this year, there’s no reason you can’t make the occasion memorable for them. All you need to do is find the perfect gift. Worried about what to pick? Aanam C took us inside her own Raksha Bandhan wish list to help you out. From her dream outfit to the presents she’d love to gift and receive from her brother, we’ve got it all in here!


What would be your dream outfit for Raksha Bandhan this year?

I think I’m going to opt for something soft and feminine this year, like this lilac Okhai kurta. I love the cinch around the waist, and I know I’ll be able to style it in so many different ways too, so I can keep wearing it for other occasions.


What are the top three gifts you’d like to receive from your brother?

My wishlist this year is going to be a mix! My Apple AirPods don’t work any more, so I’m definitely adding those to my wish list.

This silver and rose gold watch by Guess has also caught my eye. It’s quite a classy pick that I would love to have.

Last but not the least, I’m going to add this cute rose gold ‘A’ pendant to my list too.


What are the top three gifts you’d like to gift your brother?

My brother loves white sneakers, so these Cole Haan kicks would be totally up his alley.

I also think the smartwatch in blue from Fossil is really cool. [My brother] would LOVE it because he’s so funky with his fashion.

Plus, this tan Da Milano suitcase would be perfect for this travels post Covid-19.
